Scent of Autumn
Do The Seasons Inspire Your Perfume Choices?
They sure do for us! In preparation for the change in seasons, you might also be thinking about moving your fresh, fruity and citrus perfumes into warmer, more Fall time scents.
In fact, we can almost smell the Pumpkin Spice Lattes and crisp leaves! Here are some of our top picks for fragrances that are deliciously autumnal if you are in a temperate country, yet not too heavy for ever-tropical climates.
Bois D'Hadrian by Goutal: Previously known as Annick Goutal, the brand that now goes by Goutal offers this gracefully balanced fragrance for women (but really we think it can be unisex) with woody and ivy notes freshened with uplifting citrus, spices and pine. Think along the lines of a walk through an Italian forest.
Bibliothéque by Byredo: A well-loved favourite from this cult Swedish perfume house, Bibliothéque by Byredo is for those of you who prefer some floral fruitiness. It leads with juicy peach and plums softened with violets and peonies, rounded off with hints of leather, musk and vanilla. Now if only books were this edible!
Nude by Alaia: If you like perfumes that smell tempting and edible like desserts, this one is for you. Alluring and cake-like with Tonka Bean (think sugared almonds), exotic cardamom and gently floral orange blossom bloom on a bed of warm amber, cedar and musk for a seductive finish.
Eau de Citron Noir by Hérmes: This fresh yet mysterious fragrance from the Hérmes Eaux de Cologne collection cocoons smoky and citrus black lime accords with a hint of fresh lemon, warming black tea and woody notes. C'est sophistique!
